Bouquet Preservation Basics
by Mary Liu, VowsForever.com
Are you interested in preserving your beautiful wedding bouquet for years to come? If you would like a bouquet of dried flowers, you can easily dry them on your own while away on your honeymoon. First, make sure you talk with your florist about using flowers that dry well. After the wedding, hang your bouquet upside down in a dry, dark place for two weeks. Then display your bouquet in a location with minimal traffic since dried flowers are extremely fragile.
If you would like to preserve your bouquet to look like it did on your wedding day, ask your florist about freeze drying your flowers. After the wedding, your florist will take apart your bouquet, freeze dry each piece separately, reassemble it, and then display it in a glass box. Your bouquet will be preserved for generations to come - for you to share with your children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren.
